De Syv Sostrene, Norway

From series “Most Fanciful Waterfalls of the Planet”
Height: 250 meters.

In Norway you will find the legendary De Syv Sostrene (the Seven Sisters) waterfall. It is legendary in the literal sense of the word - many beautiful legends are associated with this natural attraction. The name of the waterfall is due to the fact that it is divided into seven separate streams. The maximum height of a stream is 250 meters. All local residents know the legend about seven sisters - beautiful girls to whom a viking warrior once came to woo. The sisters told him to get the most beautiful veil and the next day to come to choose a future wife. Despite the courage and strength, the viking could not decide the choice. He approached the sisters with a veil in his hands, and froze in indecision. Nowadays, locals associate the snow-white waterfall with a wedding veil.

De Syv Sostrene, Norway It is noteworthy, that opposite the Seven Sisters waterfall there is another single waterfall, Friaren, the name of which can be translated from Norwegian as 'a groom'. Tourists who want to see the waterfall in all its glory should visit it in May or June when glaciers begin to melt in the mountains. Although the waterfall freezes in winter, it doesn’t become less attractive. In winter scenic places are visited by mountain climbers, for whom the frozen waterfall serves as an ideal route for climbing. An excursion to the waterfall will not only allow you to enjoy the beauty of idyllic landscapes, but also significantly expands knowledge related to the national culture of Norway.
